Themes are always important in the development and running blogs. Blog’s outlook and layout, navigation, color scheme and material placement are part of the theme and when these things combine they make theme of the blog. Custom theme of the blog is normally designed by php or wordpress developer in which client’s choice and preferences are deeply involved to carry out the desired functions. Design also depends on the blog’s type.
As unique content of the blog is the best thing about any blog, similarly unique or custom theme also works in the benefit of the blog. It is about uniqueness. Let’s see, some people are very crazy about fashion designing and designers outfits and they find some limited edition collection of their favorite brand. One of them finds a dress on a designer’s display that was only the single piece and it was made just one piece in whole collection, the person who found this dress, will surely try to buy this dress if he likes it. That will make him unique because no one will ever wear that dress again.
Custom theme is like a dress of the website, if you wear unique and custom made, you will look unique. Custom’s meaning is ‘made for an individual’. So its meaning tells us exactly what does it mean.
Custom theme vs. Free theme
Custom theme vs. Free theme comparison and debate is one of the most discussed topics among the bloggers. Professional and mature bloggers always go for custom or premium themes where as free themes are widely used category. Amateur and new bloggers, who don’t want to spend more money after buying domain and hosting, look for free themes.
Tips to improve your blog’s performance:
Good domain name selection: Selecting a reasonable and quality domain name is very important. If you choose a domain name, which does not have meaning, but it sounds cool and attractive, it can work, if you choose a domain name which is hard to pronounce and different people pronounce it in different ways, it can become hurdle in the popularity of your blog.
Reliable Host: Definitely you will need web hosting for your blog. Professional and successful bloggers always host blogs on the good and reliable hosting company. Free blogs do not sound professional. Good and quality hosting company provides better hosting service which increases the performance of your blog. It speeds up your blog or website and helps in making your blog a search engine friendly website.
Premium or Custom theme: Custom themes always make good impression. They are good looking and unique. When visitors have seen a template or theme on many blogs and you are using it also on your blog, then your blog never attract them much. Not only visitors but it was observed that search engines also give less importance to the free theme blogs because same themes are being used in thousands of blogs.
High quality and unique content: Content is always important on the blog. Three pillars of a blog are Hosting, Design or theme and content. If you make these three things well in your blog, no one can stop your blog from getting success. High quality content is the content that is meaningful to the users, easy to understand and properly written (no grammar mistakes) and it must be useful for the readers. Some bloggers say while emphasizing on the quality of the content that make content for the people not for search engines.
Valuing Readers: You blog should show that you value your visitors. All your design, advertisements and stuff should be user friendly. A reader comes to your blog should not be looking and finding menus and categories of the blog and finally he gets fed up and leave the blog.
Social Media: Social media can play its role in the blog’s success. Nowadays social media is one of the greatest tools to show your online strength. Facebook and twitter are social media giants. If your blog has twitter followers in thousands then your blog’s value will be more among readers and blog competitors and similarly if you have a huge no. of facebook fans and you are showing your facebook page snippet on your blog then readers and visitors will be impressed with the facebook figures, because both facebook and twitter will show your social media popularity.
Blog Updating: If you want to make your blog successful, you have to keep it updated. A blog without updating will never work. Search engine observes your blog and sees that how often you update your blog whenever it crawls your blog, if it finds new material on every day or in two days then it will start indexing your content and somehow start giving you visitors. So updating of your blog is certainly very important.
